East Coast Regional Director/ Resident Coach

Leanne Aranza

Music and dance became a passion for Leanne at a young age. Sparked by her mother’s early dance career and her father’s long-time work in bands, Leanne started performing with her dad and sisters before the age of 10. By 18, she was Director of Music and Arts for a large ministry while continuing to pursue her love of dance. In 2008, she moved to Nashville and discovered the joy of ballroom dancing. With intense training and quick progress under a 7-time world champion, Leanne decided to make dance her life pursuit. In early 2012, to advance her professional career, she moved to New York City to work and train with more of the top dancers in the world. She is certified in American Rhythm, American Smooth, and Latin, and competes in all styles. Leanne loves teaching and has a deep passion for people. It is her desire that every student, whether dancing competitively or socially, will gain more joy and pleasure than ever imagined from their ballroom dance experience.

Tyler Bishop

Tyler’s love of teaching started in the martial arts world before the passionate world of dance swept him away in 2010. In the 6 years he has been teaching, he has been a part of many Pro Am competitions, a variety of showcase performances, choreographed countless weddings, and truly fell in love with sharing his passion for dance with others. Outside of the studio Tyler is also quite active. He enjoys snowboarding, paintball, exploring the city, cooking and Martial Arts just to name a few. One of Tyler’s favorites quotes is by Marcus Aurelius “The universe is change; our life is what our thoughts make it” Overall, Tyler is very good at meeting each student where they are and helping them reach heights they never thought they could.
